11:04 am
business in this country, really the future of our own domestic supplies, so wouldn't you be a logical pick given what you know about that business? >> i am not doing the picking. he has a lot of people for which to choose. north dakota has unbelievable amount of energy developments going on. it is really exciting. transformational for this country. dagen: it is so transformational it made the magazine, the cover story. in one issue the article raises, how is this boom different from the one that went 30 years ago. >> we had a boom back then and they bust. that was a time they were looking for oil under the ground. that is not the case, they know exactly where the deposit is so we are very large areas. they drill 7000 wells in north dakota at this point.
11:05 am
they intended to grow between 30 and 40,000 wells because they know exactly where the deposits are 2 miles down, they don't drill dry, so the amount of additional oil and gas production is staggering, nobody would have predicted it. it is awfully good news for our country. dagen: what needs to happen to be sure this expiration and production continues in this nation? that is sort of a policy question, what is not happening in washington that needs to happen to keep the boom running? >> don't think there is anything not happen. we have to produce 25% of oil right now than we did four years ago during the previous presidential election. so we are producing more and more oil and natural gas as a result of this new approach to drilling. i expect that to continue because it is such good news for the country. there are some issues, hydraulic

dagen: china reported plans to increase that role for solar power installations in 2015 by 67% to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. connell: charles payne has been going global lately joining us to talk about solar company. dagen: he is dressed like a european gentleman. connell: very stylish. charles: as always. one of the hottest chinese solar companies back in the day. all of them traded up nice today. huge volume, they completed 128 in dollars expenditures, that is huge. we are raising a lot of money to put it to work to expand capacity. a couple of years ago there is a ton of pollution coming from one of the main plants and the fish
11:13 am
in the nearby river were turning up dead. protest went crazy. it was in shambles, but i think they have gotten their act together, it is an example or in exclamation point on that. since enacted a tariff, all of these stocks are much higher and they will continue to go higher. dagen: what about the government subsidies and the government gets from china? over there, hello, they are leaning on the government. charles: they have a lot of influence. a year and a half ago, don't look for consolidation comes to look for the companies who simply go out of business. they would rather die than be acquired. wwe're seeing some of that. a lot of the rivals are gone. those that remain get a lot of bank loans and these stocks are acting good. once the business comes around and the government spend more
11:14 am
money, you will see gains. charles: everybody is enthusiastic. a lot of people are focusing on the domestic economy. connell: i hate the media, by the way. charles: don't you? the gdp report was great. the thing that was posted last week was really good. certainly a lot of yellow flags. dagen: hangnail, blame the media. john is, blame the media. connell: let's go to bob, talk about betting on american companies. joining us by telephone today from annapolis. always great to have both on the show.
11:15 am
we pull back a little bit today, your positive on the market overall though. what do you make of where we are right now? >> we have come a long way in a short. of time. surprised it didn't happen sooner in my view. i think we are digesting the games. but will we get acceptable economic growth, acceptable earnings growth and will the risks like u.s. politics stay out of the way? the answer is yes and my guess for now it is yes. the path of least resistance is higher. connell: even if you are right, people say boy, initial investors, we will talk later about the fact they have been getting more involved in the market and the inflow starting to look better on that front, but some of them say we've had a nice run above the 14,000 last week, i missed it, should've gotten in earlier. they're looking for a big pullback, is that the wrong way
11:16 am
to go about it in your view? >> i would step up my purchases, i would not try to time it if i had earmarked for the equity market. we have avoided the fiscal cliff posted on the debt ceiling. earnings are decent, decent economic indicators here and outside the u.s. on balance is good, not everyone of them. we have central bankers all over the world, but begging for reflation putting money in the system and a lot of cash getting zero return and those things i think are the reason the stock is likely to continue going. connell: that is the last one i want to pick up on because reading your most recent numbers is lack of tolerance for the cash balances giving a zero return, so people do look and say i can't get a return for a decent yield on anything, so i would rather be in stocks than any kind of fixed income class. if any of that changing in the
11:17 am
future, and if so at what point? interest rates have to go up some point, don't they? >> i think they will continue to creep higher, but they can't go a lot higher because the economy would then weekend. so i think as we globalize and the rate race will continue hig, but a lot of cash out there saying when things were volatile in the wrong direction, meaning down, my return of my capital, if you will. now the stocks have been going higher. maybe i need just a little bit more there. connell: a pretty good economy today. that is pretty much how you sum it up? >> acceptable economy, grinding higher equity market. connell: glad to talk to you. joining us from minneapolis. dagen: it is almost a quarter past the hour, nicole is still
11:18 am
standing by at "markets now" looking at wal-mart. nicole: i am. wal-mart a huge retailer that we are focusing on. today down 1.7% drop of $1.17. and now we're talking about wal-mart because jpmorgan actually cut their price target to $75, you still have upside potential, but they say the company is doing what they do best, continued to do well but the low hanging fruit has peaked, so this is why they fadesayit is more of a challengg environment that is why they brought all of the downgrade this morning to neutral from overweight at jpmorgan. look at the broader market and how we are faring. both gained over 5% in january, a run-up of the nasdaq. we hit some key milestones, but there are concerns once again about europe.
11:19 am
the dollar is fairly strong, the few indexes back tire. traders are not surprised to see a little bit of a pullback here on this monday morning. connell: charles payne talking about china and the media with the chinese cyber attacks reported on big media companies. this could prompt action for the white house. dagen: straight from capitol hill, new legislation forcing them to balance the budget. and take a look at how the world currencies are holding up against the dollar. the weakness against the euro very dangerous if it continues. the euro is lower today, $1.35.

>> 22 minutes past the hour. your "fox business minute." 18 people dead in a tour bus crash. the bus careening out of control and narrow mountain road late. 80 people injured. the driver reported brake
11:24 am
problems. in alabama, it is now seven days a gunman has been holding a five-year-old boy hostage in a bunker. 65-year-old jamie lee dyke shot and killed a bus driver, took a boy and his underground with him. the boy will turn six on wednesday. anin last night's super bowl por outage caused by another malady electrical fencing equipment, that is the statement being provided by the energy company for the blackout at the superdome. power was cut and backup generators kicked in. those are your headlines. connell: certainly abnormal. dagen: that explanation makes no sense. we all know the power went out in the biggest sporting event of the year and the highest television broadcast of the year. the white house weighing tougher
11:25 am
actions against china after both the "wall street journal" and "new york times" reported late last week their computer systems have been hit by china-based hackers. connell: all the details on this story with peter. peter: the administration appears to be getting ready to be tough on china over computer hacking. the new government report released shortly slated to call the rising chinese attacks a threats the u.s. and its economy. they announced recent attacks on the computer systems suspected of originating from china, social media site twitter set extremely sophisticated hackers from an unidentified source may have stolen user names, e-mail addresses and passwords of 250,000 customers. the u.s. has made little progress in negotiations with the chinese to stop this kind of
11:26 am
hacking, now u.s the u.s. is considering economic and diplomatic steps to fight it and according to the financial times, for information sharing between washington and private companies to protect critical systems and infrastructure like power grids and information systems. >> we have had and have been very clear about our substantial and growing concerns about the threat of economic national security posed by cyber intrusion including the theft of instrumentation. we have been clear with the government of china that we need to begin to talk about this. peter: administration will not comment on their plans. chinese officials denied china is behind all of these attacks. connell: some breaking news coming in from charlie gasparino on this developing story from
11:27 am
herbalife. the details coming in with charlie reporting on this. telling people the company believes it is not the subject of an ftc investigation. reports to that effect killing the stock. reporting officials had not been approached. they will likely have a statement may be a little bit later on whether the subject of an ftc probe. telling people a company believes it is not the subject of an ftc stock. dagen: with more americans using their handhelds for everything including shopping. the government is ready to act. connell: our lawmakers on capitol hill said to push forward with a balanced budget proposal? will look into that.
11:28 am
and the market getting pretty bad today, down 112, but we have individual stocks doing well. here are some of the winners on the s&p 500. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger,

11:32 am
government's ready to act on that. and we have an argument coming up for small cap stocks, so we'll get to that as well. craig taig yes, small cap. russell 2000 closed at a record high on friday, incredible. bottom of the hour, stocks now and every 15 minutes, nicole is at the new york stock exchange with more on herbalife. nicole? >> reporter: all right. let's take you over to the post. we've been following this story for you, very closely with what's going on with herbalife since the middle of december. take a look at how the stock faring right now, down almost 4.5%. now, the company says it has not been approached but the sec, but the probe is still underway. they're feeling the heat at this time. we've been watching both ackerman and icahn talking about herbalife. very headline-driven stock. so we'll p continue to follow that one for you. as far as the major market averages, plenty of red on the
11:33 am
screen here. we've watched dow jones industrials down 114 points, so that certainly has been a big loser as the dollar has been extremely strong today. back to you. dagen: thank you, nicole. connell: house republicans pushing for legislation requiring president obama to submit a plan for a sustainable balanced budget. dagen: groundhog day. connell: yeah. dagen: rich edson joins us live from washington, d.c. with more. >> reporter: hey, how's it going? republicans are writing a budget they say will balance the federal books in ten years without an increase in taxes. on wednesday they'll vote on this bill requiring president obama to reveal when his budget will return the government to balance. the next budget fight is on in d.c. the white house is again missing its budget deadline legally set for today. when the administration does release it, it will likely include what republicans say is already resolved, tax revenue increases. as the president mentioned last night in many an interview -- in an interview with cbs. >> the average person doesn't have access to carried interest
11:34 am
income where they end up paying a much lower rate on billions of dollars that they've earned. so we just want to make sure that the whole system is fair, that it's transparent and that we're reducing our deficit in a way that doesn't hamper growth. >> reporter: the response from house speaker john boehner's office? the president got his revenue, now it's finally time to make the reforms necessary to save our entitlement programs. any tax loopholes we close should be used to lower rates for all taxpayers so we can be more competitive and create or more jobs. automatic spending cuts hit the federal budget march 1st. less than four weeks later, a large portion of federal spending authority expires. if democrats and republicans fail to resolve these tax and spending differences, the government is headed for those across the board spending cuts and a government shutdown. back to you. connell: rich, thank you very much. rich edson in d.c. dagen: let's bring in david stockman, former economic adviser to president ronald reagan. there's no urgency though.
11:35 am
if we don't do something about our annual budget deficits and our longer term debt that we're accumulating, is it just going to be kind of a slow drip like where we bleed to death as a nation, where we don't really feel it until it's too late? >> no. i think you drift along until you reach an inflection point, and then it they ares up in -- flares up in an uncontrollable, disastrous way. so that's why i say this is a good idea, this bill, but they should be sending it to bernanke too and his merry band of lunatic money printers. because i believe, ultimately, they are the number one, two and three cause of this huge fiscal stalemate and this disastrous budget drift that we're in. when you tell the congress as the market is saying this morning, which is totally medicated by the fed, you can borrow 90-day money for seven basis points which is a rounding error, you can't even see it, or three years for 40 basis points, there's no you are -- urgency.
11:36 am
they will never make any hard choices, and they'll never level and be honest with the public that we need both huge spending cuts as well as more revenue to get this deficit under control. number two, you don't have ten years. if you take an outlook for the next ten years identical to the last ten, in other words, an unrosy scenario, what really happened which wasn't very good, we're facing $15 trillion or more additional deficits, a built-in national debt that would be 30 trillion, 150% of gdp. that's where we're drifting. and this says balance it in ten years? you don't have ten years. they need to get to it right now, this year, next year with major cuts. connell: this argument, and you're right about being forced to do it and the reason there's no you urgency is because ratese so low, when do you see that changing? i think as you said at the outset of your remarks, it's not a problem until it's a problem. >> well, that's exactly right. greece thought it wasn't a problem until all of a sudden
11:37 am
they couldn't borrow, the market closed. now, just because we issue our own money, it doesn't mean we can flood the world with 100 trillion worth of liabilities over time. there are limits to all of this, and i think the markets are beginning to get nervous already about how far the fed can go in this money printing. what they're doing right now 85 billion a month they're buying either of mortgage-backed security or treasury bonds, that is totally artificially suppressing the market, and i believe at some point they're going to be forced to stop. dagen: but on the flip side you have plenty of democrats who not on camera talk about debt's not a worry, we're not concerned with it. an article in the l.a. times last week said our biggest economic concern is not the debt and the deficit. and then you have people pointing to that weak economic growth during the fourth quarter where we went negative, and again it was because of government spending cuts. and no politician's going to let that happen even if you're a
11:38 am
republican. >> well, that may be true, but the only reason we have even a semblance of recovery over the last three or four years is that we borrowed four or five trillion, laid the tab on the next generation, our children and the children to come, and it has been totally artificial. now, at some point we're going to have to begin reducing the deficit. when we do, the economy will be weak. that will make the deficit challenge even greater. it's a negative feedback loop. right now when all these democrats say, look, mr. market is saying go ahead, borrow, we don't square. that is not a really market. that's the echols building. that's one side of washington telling the other side, don't worry, i'm buying all the bonds. now, if you think this kind of ponzi finance is anything to do with capitalism or free markets or anything to do with sustainability, then you've read an economic textbook that didn't even exist in 1995. dagen: david, thank you so much. david stockman, i know it's like facelift. like the first few you get it
11:39 am
kind of hides your age, but eventually you're going to look, well, 8 6. connell: hasn't thought of it that way, but as always, you bring up a unique perspective. dagen: what? i'm really 75. connell: well, you look great. the ftc is pressing for new guidelines on the mobile industry. dagen: and if your worried you -- if you're worried you missed out on the latest market run, we have a rep coming up on small market caps. first, a look at treasury markets, how cheap it is. less than 2% over ten years. crazy. ♪ [ cows moo ] [ sizzling ] more rain...

11:43 am
dagen: stock mutual fund inflows are hitting dot.com era levels with january seeing the biggest inflows since april of 2000. connell: liz macdonald has it for us in the bottom line today. >> reporter: when you look at the data, it's showing not just from the month of january alone for equity funds, but all in with etf equity funds, you're going to see levels not seen since 1996, well before when federal reserve chief alan greenspan made that crack about irrational exuberance. so this is the talk of wall
11:44 am
street right now. we're seeing equity and etf inflows that have surpassed entire 2012 for all quarters. and we're going to see there are 51.7 billion flowing into all kinds of funds from the month of january alone. eighteen global markets worldwide are above the 20-month moving average. the last time we saw that was in 2009, and stocks charged ahead for a number of months into 2010 and also in '03 we saw that happen when 18 global markets were above the 20-month moving average. that's when you saw the bull market last about four years. but here's the deal, the 2007 top that we saw, the pe back then, 15 times earnings. now stocks are still cheap for the s&p 500 forward. they're at 13.4. so if we see 14.7, that's an s&p of 1600. if we see a floor pe of 15, that's an s&p of 1700. so that's the name of the game. we could hit that 1665 in the s&p by mid year, not year end.
11:45 am
dagen: the only thing is these retail fund flows usually pick up at the very end of a run. like april of 2000, we've had the strongst month since then. that was right after the peak. and then it was, hello, bottom. >> yeah, that's a great point. we did see that. but again, the bears are still in the building. they haven't so much left the building. i hear what you're saying. and the question is what will bring this down, what will reverse the flows. of course, the pumping air to the market bubble from the federal reserve, that's the talk on wall street. connell: yeah. more throughout the day from e. mac. thank you, liz. dagen: the federal trade commission pushing for privacy controls for the quickly-growing mobile device business as more and more americans use their phones to, well, surf the internet and shop and you name it, they do it on their phone. connell: yes, they do. shibani joshi with the story. >> reporter: and take pictures with and tweet about the super bowl with. all of these devices we can't live without and have become ingrained in our everyday life.
11:46 am
they're a big opportunity. they're also a big security threat. you know, as many as 217 million smartphones were sold globally in the fourth quarter of last year alone. it's a huge business, and as these device sales explode, so do the apps, the ads, the analytics that wrap around these devices. they also grow exponentially. now, the ftc realizing that there's an opportunity here and a risk decided to get involved, making some new proposals for the mobile industry going so far as to single out some well known names including google, apple, research in motion, microsoft and amazon in a new report. the problem is that a third of americans right now, according to this report, do not feel in control of their information on mobile devices, so the ftc in this report decided to provide some suggestions for the mobile industry including more disclosure, asking for explicit consent before accessing things like geolocation, even establishing a do not track
11:47 am
program for smartphones in the way we have a do not call list. these, however, are merely suggestions. there are no penalts, this is nonbinding, but the ftc is looking closely at this and probably some sort of regulation on the horizon but not imminent at least for now. but, yeah, we do not know what the risks are as of yet, and this gives us a sense that they're just trying to get their arms around this right now. dagen: shibani, thank you for that. connell: let's go back to nicole. i know you have some post-super bowl movers for us. >> reporter: that's right. let's take a look at some of the names and companies that are related to the super bowl ads that we all saw. i'm sure you didn't miss all of them. you got something out of this. let's take a look at how they are faring. a lot of down arrows, doesn't necessarily bode well for those ads they paid so much money for them. but they certainly are in the top ten of popularity when you talk about the clydesdale and how what a great tear jerker
11:48 am
that ad was. that was certainly my favorite. you also had best buy's 30-second ad with amy pohler who was asking question after question about electronics. you have doritos, taco bell, some of the senior citizens hitting the the taco bell. there's yum brands down 1.7%. also we'll keep an eye on pepsico as well. awedty, godaddy, samsung, hunday, i mean, they were understoodless, and a lot were -- obviously, they were fun to watch. there's anheuser-busch down over 4% today. connell: all right, thank you. dagen: favorite ad? connell: i don't remember any of them. the old people at the -- dagen: no, dodge ram. farmers, hello. celebrate america. connell: i just like elderly men

11:51 am
11:52 am
connell: all right. so an interesting day in the market. stocks are down, as we've been talked about. it's been tough going in the bond market, we've also talked about investors concerned maybe they missed the run in equity, so we have an argument right now
11:53 am
to be made for small cap stocks. dagen: chairman and ceo of asset management. good to see you. small caps are up more than your other market gauges. the russell 2000 chosed at a record on friday. why would you bet on an already-hot group of stocks? >> i guess we should quit then, huh? [laughter] i mean, the game's over. dagen: there are always options. >> no, there's many options. here's the thing. i don't believe in buying markets. we don't. we believe in buying companies. we think there's -- even when things were terrible and i came on here, there's always opportunities. we see many, many opportunities. i love banks, regionals, the smaller the better. look, we saw what happened in the super bowl yesterday. nobody has told me one way or another if it was of a cyber problem or not, but it isn't surprising. you look at "the new york times," you look at everything. we're under attack, both our government and our companies. so i like companies that play in the space of cybersecurity. i think there are opportunities
11:54 am
across the board. and if you're in this low interest rate environment where, my goodness, if somebody -- if i were a hedge fund manager today and somebody just plopped down and gave me a billion dollars, it's a very difficult -- you could go anywhere you want. you could go -- it's as difficult a time for new money that i have seen in 20 years. and so because of that you have to drill down into the individual names, you have to drill down into the individual sectors and businesses. and when you do that -- dagen: but if you're an individual investor, you don't have an option for doing that. >> you find somebody -- dagen: i don't have that option. >> well, if it's only 401(k). but then you have to find the option in will that works for you. as a bull, and i am a bull for long term for the marketplace, i still think in this move we're in the second or third inning. i do think, however, we're going to have some starts and fits, so i do think -- but the problem is, the problem is, is if you're not in, i think you have to start stepping in now.
11:55 am
and that's one of the big problems. connell: by the way, on that second or third inning comment, it's intriguing to talk about some of the individual and the cybersecurity, we've done a number of stories on that lately. and by the way, we've got no indication of what happened at the super bowl, no reason it had anything to do about that. but you're right about "the new york times" last week, "wall street journal," but why do you make the comment about the second or third inning? people see the headlines, markets near an all-time high, man, i missed it. how do you finish. >> no, i don't think so. connell: why not? >> liz was on earlier talking about money flows and the mutual funds. that's a relative basis. one of the thing is the the money is not coming out of the bond funds. it's coming out of the cash portion that people have stored up. connell: right. >> and if you take a look, money's not coming out of bond funds. i think what's going to happen, if we continue in this type of marketplace, people are taking money out of -- by the way, i think bond funds are an extremely dangerous place for that individual investor you're talking about. i think there's more risk in
11:56 am
those bond funds than any equity funds out there because i don't think people understand the risk they're taking when they have money in the bond funds where they can lose principal, okay? surprise, surprise, interest rates someday will go back up. dagen: if you hold a maturity --? >> that's a bond, right. dagen: every maturity, every bond fund also has an average maturity, so if you're willing to own that bond fund, it doesn't matter. unless they're forced to sell at a loss on those funds, if you hold that bond fund to the average maturity, you will get your principal back in theory if it's managed -- >> in theory, but that new money comes in, and money continues to roll, and they continue to make those maturities go out. i have no problem with people buying individual bonds. listen, here's the risk. the ten-year treasury for every 100 basis point move up in interest rates, 900 basis points -- 100 basis points, 1%, you can lose 3% in principal -- 8% in principal. now, you are correct, you can hold it for the ten-year period
11:57 am
of time, but that's not a great proposition. and given that backdrop, the names we like and the things that i like, i think, are much better situations in a basket of those stocks than being in a bond fund. connell: all right, joe, good to see you again. >> nice seeing you. connell: all right. moving right along here. markets now and just when investors jump back into the market, the dow on track today for its biggest one-day drop of the new year. cheryl and dennis are ahead with their coverage. they have a major bear coming on who says watch out below, apparently. dagen: and those super bowl commercials, can't talk enough about that. kate upton, she was in that mercedes ad for two seconds. loser. her and mercedes. or were they? find out from dennis, straight ahead.

dennis: i am dennis kneale. cheryl: i am cheryl casone it as more investors jumped back into the market, the dow on track the biggest one-day drop of the year. scott martin says investors are struggling with where to put their money. dennis: chinese hacking on the rise in u.s. government businesses are the target. what the obama administration wants to do about it. cheryl: super blackout. who is responsible in what it will cost. dennis: this super bowl got the best ratings ever, into one the ad bowl? the best and the very worst. nicole petallides at the new york stock exchange up 149 on the dow. down now. nicole: a selloff day.
12:02 pm
you get some, you give some back. we are pulling back, down about 130 points right now. we're not looking at dow 14,000 like we were on friday. a monumental day for all of those after five years from 2007 when i have been waiting and finally got it. today a different story, there are concerns once again about europe and as a result the dollar gaining strength, and that weighs on the market. take a look at blackberry, a name in the headlines, selling off dramatically and now we have endless coming out and talking positively putting it in saying obviously they are believing in the company, the price targets $22 up from $12, and the stock is really jumping today. cheryl: a little late to the
12:03 pm
party. but we will take it, at least the shareholders will. we will see you in 14 minutes am now. more money hit the market last month then since the dotcom era. $20.7 billion of inflows recorded in january, the most since april of 2000. my next guest says this is happening despite what is happening in the u.s. economy. chief marketing strategist is here. he say this is despite the economy does not look good in your opinion, scott. what is the problem? >> take your pick. one thing that directly affects consumers is wage growth. it is nonexistent, it is flat to just slightly up, and if you adjust it for inflation it is not up, actually negative. people don't have as much money,
12:04 pm
so they're not putting as much money into stocks because they know the economy is not great. cheryl: we have seen the housing market continued to recover and really turn around in many peoples opinion and he said unemployment number kind of jumped up little bit. still, these inflows and the movement into the equity market, is that because cash has been on the sidelines and people want to go to work or is it the bond market is at such a bad option right now? >> i think that is totally it. flying faster than can be counted. with the money market rates near zero, it has to go somewhere and the way to get the return with dividends included is the equity market, so you have to go in if you are in a bind because you don't want to see the deterioration go up in both the u.s. and other countries. look for something and that will be equities from dividends.
12:05 pm
cheryl: i see your point about this being the lesser of two evils. certainly a lot of companies are beating. do you stick with this? >> i think high-yield bonds have been pretty good, given we have an equity return with half the volatility. like all of the funds because high-yield bonds, high-grade corporate, u.s. treasuries, those fields are down around two, three, you can still get seven, 89%. not a lot of volatility. cheryl: were looking at those charts. the return of the last three months return has been negative.
12:06 pm
i'm asking if you are staying with them, it seems a lot of money has moved away from that play. >> is more of the high-grade. look, i think they still do have a higher yield than a treasury bond does, which you'll start seeing a lot of outflows coming from. cheryl: on a day like today our viewers will feel the same way seeing the dow down 136 points, you have a couple of plays, sector plays if things go south in the market. >> consumer staples, people have to buy shampoo, toothpaste, even though it had been in new orleans. good dividends and act defensive when the market gets nasty. cheryl: i will be a little bit more picky than i would have been yesterday or friday, that is a good point.
12:07 pm
we will be following your pics. thank you. dennis: president obama in an interview before the super bowl said more tax revenue needed to fix the deficit. >> there's no doubt we need additional revenue coupled with smarter spending reductions in order to bring down the deficit. we can build them in a gradual ways it doesn't have a huge impact. dennis: the president continues to push for more taxes, the chief political strategist says the presidents rhetoric is shifting. i saw that obama interview yesterday with the president and kept thinking my gosh, he is saying the same thing over again, why is he talking about growth in tax revenue versus growing the economy. you see something optimistic here. >> he never specifies what the spending cuts will be. always make spending cuts. on revenues, think there has
12:08 pm
been a real shift, they have stopped talking about big, huge chunk of taxes on the rich. we are back to talking about these cats and dogs, corporate jets, carried interest, oil and gas industry stock, if that is what they are reduced to that is a good story because investors and taxpayers can pretty much count on no new tax increases on most americans. dennis: i think it is awfully optimistic of you. what were raised before that are not raised now? president abou obama hoping for. that is what they're doing. >> i think before they were thinking of tax reform as a guise for raising a big chunk of revenues. let's kill the mortgage deduction, state and local taxes, muni bond exceptions, that is all off the table now.
12:09 pm
dennis: i could swear i heard the president himself said during the debate we have to cut the corporate tax rate. where is that discussion gone? >> not very far lately. both are scaling back. they realize the tax reform is very unlikely. again, we will get cats and dogs. it has taken long enough. but the really big stuff now is off the table. dennis: what about the idea of slashing corporate tax rates on our companies keeping tax overseas. they insist on taxing it a second time when it comes over here. i have seen some rumblings that maybe president obama will soften his stance against that. >> he might in the context of general corporate tax reform. this is with gun control, sounds
12:10 pm
great, but we all like it. then you come up with the details and they are really daunting. dennis: i like your optimism they will not be a if they tax increases coming. what about the mindset for businesses we see the president went before the super bowl talk about more tax revenue instead of how to grow the economy. when president bush cut taxes, revenue grew 46% in the next four years over 26% increase in government spending because you helped grow the economy. >> exactly. he will sa talk about new taxesn business. it will not happen. one of the other big changes is republicans who looked so bad in december, disorderly retreat, the republicans are not going to cave again. they are amazingly unified, so i think the bottom line is major new tax increases.
12:11 pm
dennis: thank you very much. cheryl: energy giant halliburton getting greener. the company is offering what it says is a non-toxic franking fluid made with fda ingredients. it is more expensive than other fluids that is safer for the environment environment for groups applauded the latest effort to help make fracking safer but they still don't hav e questions about it. look at halliburton down right now. from going green to making green. the international airport at jackson rated the best airport for business travelers. the survey of 1000 travel agents looked at everything from wireless internet access to food choices. the top spot with 125 eateries, many retail stores have a business that runs small rooms

year, company that has a huge instalinstalled base, so apple t going away. >> they're going from 40 to 20. this is a hardware company. >> the margins will go down. the question is why did they go down the last year. >> look at their major customers, they absolutely hate them. the major customers are the phone companies, paying them $600, sell it for 200, they lose 400 on the front end, the samsung, the episcopal hundreds of dollars, everybody else they lose a lot less were they lose nothing. it is already a mature market. there's no reason i can dominate this world, no reason the phone

12:38 pm
still seeing enormous category growth, earnings will be fine, they will come down somewhat. the question is at eight times or 10 times, whatever metric you want to use, is that reflective of apple's growth opportunities that should grow 15 to 20%? cheryl: it is almost do i buy apple and short the nasdaq? but they're like $2 billion of market cap, with the stock fall that we have seen. thank you to both of you, appreciate it, great stuff. dennis: super commercial bowl. in the media minute. cheryl: and in your "west coast minute," california could get a huge shot in the arm. dennis: first, a look at ten-year treasuries. all stations come over to mission a for a final go.
